What type of anesthesia is used for a brow lift?

Being put under general anesthesia scares the heck out of me and is part of the reason I am so against having cosmetic surgery.  What are my options when it comes to a brow lift? Can sedatives be used so I am not completely under?

i was under local anesthesia and i know how you feel, was scared. But no worries, it is absolutely safe:-)

Hi ScardyKat,

Don't worry! A brow lift can be performed under local, twilight, or general anesthesia.

Brow lifts are relatively non-extensive cosmetic procedures that take between one and two hours to complete. Because of this, they are generally performed under twilight anesthesia or IV sedation.
